Clean and sanitize your work station and all of your utensil. It is suggested that you wear gloves, an apron, gloves, a face mask, and a hair net while preparing this recipe.
Step 1: First, we will prepare our dry ingredients. In a large mixing bowl, add your baking soda, sodium cocoyl isethionate, cream of tartar, and corn starch. Mix well, using your hands to break up any clumps.
Step 2: Next, in a separate bowl, weigh out and mix your wet ingredients. In a mixing bowl, blend the following vegetable glycerin, meadowfoam seed oil, and Basil Sage Mint Fragrance Oil.
Step 3: Now, add your wet ingredients to the bowl containing the dry ingredients. Use your hands to mix the ingredients together. Continue to mix until you have a dough consistency. Note: If your dough is too crumbly, you can add a bit more vegetable glycerin. However, be careful not to add too much or your dough will become too wet and will not setup properly.
Step 4: Begin separating your dough. You will need three mixing bowls. Separate the dough into three equal portions. Place 1/3 of your dough into each bowl.
Step 5: Each of the three bowls you prepared will be a different color. To the first bowl, add 4 grams of neon green colorant and 2 grams of the ground basil. To the second bowl, add 10 grams of Kelly green soap colorant, 10 drops of the lime green colorant, and 2 grams of the peppermint leaf powder. The third bowl will remain uncolored. Then, using your gloved hands, mix the colorants into each of the bowls of dough. Once you have mixed each portion, roll them into a ball.
Step 6: Next, we will begin rolling out our dough. First, lay down a piece of parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Sprinkle the area lightly with baking soda to prevent sticking. Then, place your neon green bubble bar dough in the center. Roll the dough into a rectangular shape. You want this layer to be about ¼” thick.
Step 7: Now, place your lighter sage green dough directly on top of the rolled out neon green dough. You want to place the dough in the center. Then, roll the light green dough to the same rectangular shape of the previous layer.
Step 8: Finally, place the white dough directly on top of the lighter green layer. Again, roll this layer to the same shape as your previous layer. So, once you are finished, you will have three layers of dough. All of them should be about the same shape and thickness.
Step 9: We will now begin rolling our bubble bar dough into a loaf. So, place the rolled out dough in front of you vertically. Then, lift up on the edge of parchment paper that is closest to your body. Begin rolling the dough in the same manner you would roll a jelly roll. Roll slowly and evenly until the dough is completely rolled.
Step 10: Slice the loaf into 1-2 inch thick slices. This recipe will make about 8 slices, depending on how thick you choose to slice your loaf. Once you have sliced your loaf, simply let your bubble bars setup. You will know they are ready once they have hardened. It took our bubble bars approximately 48 hours to setup. However, it can take longer depending on the climate of your environment.
Your Basil Sage Mint Bars are now ready to use! To use your bubble bars crumble a bubble bar under your warm running bath water.
